7) Trading multiple firsts to select Trey Burke (2013)
Make no mistake about it, Trey Burke was a big name four years ago. He helped the Michigan Wolverines ascend to heights not seen since the Fab Five era, leading the team to the NCAA title game. In the process, he received national Player of the Year and All-American honors.
So, with Devin Harris on the outs, the Jazz moved two first-round picks (at Nos. 14 and 21) to move up and draft Burke in the Top 10, making him their point guard of the future. However, after three years of mediocre production at the point, the Jazz dealt Burke for little more than a second-round pick.
Last season he sat on the bench for the Washington Wizards. Meanwhile, the players drafted with the picks Utah traded — Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng — have been solid contributors for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
